  1. M.I.A.

    For the US music scene she is special but not unlike Dizzee Rascal she is regulated to the "hipster" scene. I hope the press doesn't pigeon-hole her and make her a one hit wonder. That being said I think she has potential. I dig what she's trying to do. ______________________________ Making Africa Pop!!!

    The trend is just a way for hiphop heads to incorporate the "dressed up look" Jay-Z promoted but still loose fitting gear. You have to figure that japanese brands mix the hiphop feel with the slight european cut which makes for a less baggy fit. Clones are clones and Jay-Z/Snoop/50 cent etc. set the standards. ______________________________ Making Africa Pop!!!

  7. MAGIC/POOL tradeshows

    Which of the shows are better for small lines? MAGIC , POOL, PROJECT? Do you get as many buyers actually buying at the shows or is it just a big promotions party for clothing lines? Most of the info about the shows come from the show producers and though they say there are all these buyers from all over the world I'm not sure whether it's hype or truth. ______________________________ Making Africa Pop!!!

  11. Just got back from MAGIC and...

    Japanese lines are running the high end hiphop fashion world now. You got to figure that this is "exotic" for hiphop heads and as usuall they all fall in line once a celebrity wears it. I think BAPE f'd up with opening a store in the US. Exclusivity is eveything and they lost it totally. ______________________________ Making Africa Pop!!!
  12. Is it just me...

    or is Soho (NYC) getting a little too generic? I just visited BAPE store for first time and was hardly impressed. I don't know if it is a true representation of the brand. Hope not. I noticed that a lot of the newer stores in the area are so generic . I don't know if its a reflection of NYC itself or fashion at large but I find it hard to find new fashion design ideas in NYC. Even NY Fashion week collections seemed to be a bust. ______________________________ Making Africa Pop!!!

  14. Can anyone suggest any manufacturers in the US who provide techniques similar to LRG clothing line? I know there are places which offer a good selection of tees and do complex screen and embroidery but am having a hard time locating one in the NY/NJ area. All the places I've come across are pretty much promotions companies who don't really deal with clothing lines. I would like to find some companies who can at least do screen, embroidery and maybe some other techniques (similar to LRG clothing line) and possibly change out tags. I know its a tall order for a small company. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ______________________________ Making Africa Pop!!!
